This commit is broken. It prevents user from filtering out unwanted ASM
sources if someone is e.g. DOSing him.

If user explicitly specified the server address, VLC should NOT ignore it.

If SSM is unavailable, we have fallback to IGMPv2 with the same
functionality, so for IPv4 this commit is duplicate. If you want the
same for IPv6, please implement fallback instead.
